The discount will be open to bike industry workers ranging from bike brands through to retail staff and coaches. 

Dave George, Bikmo CEO, said: “’We’re delighted to be launching Bikmo Pro today, a 25% discount for the lifetime of a policy for anyone working in the cycling industry. 

‘’Our mission is to protect the world’s riders, and we want to play our part in helping everyone supporting our industry in what continues to be an exciting time for cycling.

Bikmo, headquartered in Cheshire, offers a range of cycling-specific insurance products both for riders and businesses, including cover for theft and accidental damage, as well as race cover, public liability cover, and insurance for clothing and accessories. 

Earlier this year, the brand also launched Bikmo Bike Shop Insurance, a new product and service designed exclusively for cycle retailers looking for a personal and specialised approach to business insurance.

“Offering bike shop business insurance feels like a natural move for us, and we hope that it will help give retailers around the country more confidence and resilience to do what they do best.”
